After the September 11th terrorist attacks, Congress worked to add spending to cope with the changed needs of the country. This $30 billion supplemental spending bill mostly adjusted defense and homeland security spending, but it also included measures only indirectly related to this spending objective. Warner (R-VA) had proposed an amendment to forbid U.S. assistance to or cooperation with the international criminal court in any case that did not assist or defend U.S. or allied citizens. Dodd (DCT) proposed an amendment to Warner's amendment that would have allowed assistance through September 30, 2002, in cases involving Saddam Hussein, Slobodan Milosevic, Osama bin Laden, Islamic Jihad, the al Qaeda terrorist network, or anyone accused of genocide, war crimes, or crimes against humanity. In the vote at issue here, Warner moved to table (kill) Dodd's amendment. Progressives-who generally supported international institutions-supported Dodd's changes and so opposed the motion to table. This motion passed 55-40, thus leaving intact Warner's restrictions on participation in the international criminal court.
